The Original Signing Time

Signing Time Season One

Season One contains the original 13 volumes of Signing Time – the sign language vocabulary-building series that started it all! Each volume teaches approximately 30 signs and exposes viewers to countless other ASL signs through song.

Host Rachel Coleman introduces and models each sign. Leah, Rachel’s daughter, who is deaf, and Alex, Rachel’s nephew, also model the signs being taught through short vignettes in their animated world.

Sign and sing along with real families and children in the show. Sing, sign, move, and learn!

As Seen On

Signing Time Season Two

Season Two contains even more original music and fun, set in learning signs in a topical format. It introduces new ways of teaching children with a range of needs and abilities.

Most of the content for Season Two was generated from customer suggestions and questions and was seen on Public Television. Sections from each show were seen on Netflix.

Season Two reinforces signs that have been learned in Series One, and builds your ASL vocabulary with many new signs. Brand new learning modules such as “Counting Time” and “ABC Time” are segments within each volume that reinforce either the theme or signs being taught, and provide the opportunity to practice other skills within a signing framework.

Why Two Little Hands Learning Systems?

Our Sign Language learning system starts withBaby Signing Time and Potty Time. Baby Sign Language lets babies communicate their needs rather than crying. Children are able to understand language as early as 6 months, however the ability to speak requires complex fine motor skills that don’t develop until much later. The result is frustration and tantrums. Signing Time will introduce your child to over 1,000 ASL signs. Signing Time Sentences teaches all ages how to put your signs together in conversation. Rachel and the TreeSchoolers teaches preschool science through songs and signs. Our learning system contain over 40 sign language videos.
